"Investment Banking" University Tour Gives Students Insight into Finance World

Authors Joshua Rosenbaum and Joshua Pearl decided to write “Investment Banking” because they realized most of the knowledge they needed in the recruiting process, and subsequently as a new hire in the investment banking world, wasn’t easily available in books or the classroom. So, on the heels of the publication of the second edition of “Investment Banking,” they decided to embark on a media tour of schools and universities to give the students some insight into what they really need to know to enter the investment banking world.

Authors Joshua Rosenbaum and Joshua Pearl decided to write “Investment Banking” because they realized most of the knowledge they needed in the recruiting process, and subsequently as a new hire in the investment banking world, wasn’t easily available in books or the classroom. So, on the heels of the publication of the second edition of “Investment Banking,” they decided to embark on a media tour of schools and universities to give the students some insight into what they really need to know to enter the investment banking world.

On September 30, Joshua Rosenbaum spoke to an eager group of 100+ students at New York University’s Stern School of Business about what to expect on the job, interview questions and general knowledge that was important as they embark in this fiercely competitive career.

On October 4, Joshua Rosenbaum and Joseph Gasparro spoke to 200+ students from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia, PA as part of the Wharton Finance Conference. Joshua and Joseph gave an in-depth discussion of the nuts-and-bolts of the pillars of investment banking– comparable companies, precedent transactions, DCF and LBO analysis, as well as M&A analysis.

Stay tuned for more stops on the tour throughout the academic year!
